All previous releases of Inventor before 2013 would display the name of the parameter that controls the offset value of a plane. While editing an offset plane you could see the name either in the title of the pop up or by holding your cursor over the parameter value. In release 2013 I have been unable to find the parameter name anywhere when editing the plane. I have a lot of equations in my models. Being able to track down bugs is difficult enough without not knowing what parameter I'm looking at.
Is there a setting I need to turn on/off to get the parameter name to display again?
Are you using the mini toolbar? They haven't ever shown parameter names, it's a "known issue". Instead, drill into the browser and look at the mate for the plane. You'll see the parameter name there.
This would only work in the assembly environment.
In a part there is a tooltip that tells you in which feature a parameter is used (better than nothing):

Thanks for the response. At least now I know it's not me and that the issue is on the agenda.
